in 1996, Surrey Diagnostics Limited is an expert veterinary
diagnostic laboratory, with Clients throughout the UK and Europe. We
are fully staffed by trained scientists, veterinary surgeons and other
a wide range of services to veterinary surgeries and scientific institutions,
including serology, bacteriology, mycology, parasitology, molecular
biology (PCR), haematology and biochemistry. Our trained research team
is also able to develop new tests in response to Client requirements.
MRSA testing service is run by our Head Microbiologist who
has over 30 years experience in the fields of bacteriology and mycology.
The testing laboratory uses the latest developments in specific cell
culture techniques and agglutination tests.
service offers a high quality environmental monitoring services to a
diverse cross-section of industries. These include the Veterinary Medicine
market, food production facilities, pharmaceutical companies and the
public sector – including hospitals, schools and office buildings.
Ltd is the UK agent for a number of different systems designed to reduce
the levels of Laboratory Animal Allergens, viruses, bacteria and odours
in the air. These work by using a combination of UV technology and Photocatalytic
Oxidation (PCO). This type of technology been shown in laboratory animal
facility trials to reduce airborne allergen levels by up to 97%. We
have systems that can be simply fitted into rooms or systems that can
be retro-fitted into the ducting of the HVAC system.
Ltd is also the UK agent for the ProGuardsystem which can create
fresh batches of cleaning and disinfectant chemicals in a small self-contained
handheld spray unit from just tap water and a small scoop of salt crystals
using electrolysis technology. A similar technology called Ecosafe
can be used to dose the water system in the building to kill bacterial
contamination and remove biofilm, whilst still leaving the water safe
to drink. These systems have been adopted by hospitals and childcare
facilities across Europe and we are now bringing it to the laboratory
Ltd is the UK agent in the laboratory animal sector for a technology
called the Speedy Breedy. This small portable respirometer can
be used to detect and quantify bacterial contamination in samples within
hours rather than days. This removes the need to send samples off to
microbiology laboratories for simple sterility checks, saving time and
money. If a sample is found to be contaminated then the reaction vessel
can be sent to Surrey Diagnostics Ltd for identification of the contaminating
bacteria. This technology is already being used by major centres of
excellence in the UK laboratory animal sector to check the sterility
of their animal drinking water.
